Specs: xp home, 3200

Hi
I am getting a problem at start up where login page hangs and mouse freezes up about every 5 seconds for about 5 seconds. The keyboard freezes at the same points too and so I am only able to type 4 or 5 digits at a time then have to wait for cursor again, When I finally get into desktop I am seeing microsoft fax error failed to initialise in event viwer. I also went into bios and it said keyboard error but thats all it said.
Done an intense virus and adware scan and nothing of any issue coming up. Thanx in advance if you can help me.

Open msconfig and disable the starting of the application.

Some versions of firewalls were calling the fax system a threat. Symantec's did that for a while. Might also look at your firewall and see if any posts suggest a firewall edit.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, are in my top 10

'Done an intense virus and adware scan'

There is more to Spyware than just 'Adware'.

Spyware includes ----
Adware, Dialers, Browser Hijackers, Trojans, Cookies,
Key Loggers, Trackware, and other Malware while browsing the internet.

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Hi
I know! I have also run cwshredder and ccleaner and spybot. I have done a virus and spyware scan with my zone alarm pro too so it all looks clean thus far.
The pc this is happening to is a client pc run on a network. I cannot get on the network most of the time either though it was running fine ( wireless). Even the windows sound at start up halts and then carries on.
I have found these too in Event viewer.
DHCP error ID 1009
WnMGMT error ID 5603
I have read and googled them with no help found.
I increased the mouse buffer but that has had no effect. Thanx

Can anyone help please? Its a msytery. I have to wait 5 seconds every 5 seconds to get my cursor back. Have tried three different mice from USB to PS2. Have checked connections etc. Nothing looks wrong but with sound cutting off during start up too and coming back on as desktop is half loaded I dont want to have to reinstall, only did that about 4 months ago. Thanks
